Product Description
Are you constantly looking for new ways to make your shop or garage safe? North Shore Commercial Door has found one of the safest, quietest, smallest side mount DC operators in the industry today. The Zap DC garage door operator is your answer. The Zap features SafetySense technology, which is one of the industry’s most advanced obstruction detection systems available allowing the Zap to detect an obstruction on any part of the door, whether it’s opening or closing. This means a safe garage door operator not only for you, but for your door and its surroundings.

The Model 8825-3 is a medium duty commercial model operator with a 1HP motor. This operator is capable of running sectional overhead garage doors up to 240 square feet in size, 1200 lbs. in balanced weight, and able to customize with track configurations such as low headroom, standard lift, high lift, and full vertical lift. Like all the Zap model operators, the motor assembly only contains the motor, two pulleys and one belt, which means no chains or sprockets making all that unnecessary noise in your garage or shop.

The model 8825-3 only requires 7” of side clearance and 3 ˝” above the center of your spring shaft, so limited space is not an issue. The entire operator is NEMA 4 rated for water/moisture resistance. The 8825-3 offers many built in program features that are standard. These include auto close timer, cycle counter, and service due reminder.

You can also incorporate a multitude of auxiliary items to the Zap 8825-3. These include, but are not limited to interior/exterior lighting, additional wall controls, swipe card devices, dock equipment, motion sensors, and alarm systems. The list goes on and on.

Installation of the model 8825-3 is as simple as it gets. It only requires one person with a ladder to install the motor assembly on the spring shaft. Nothing mounts to the wall, jamb, or header area. Unlike traditional operators, you won’t be needing the scissors lift, two people, or a welder for this installation. The Zap control box is even easier to install. Just four screws to fasten it to the wall near the door, and power it up by plugging it into a nearby outlet in your garage or shop (electrical pigtail required). Now it’s just a matter of running the door open and close two times with the 8825-3 and it will set it’s fully open and closed positions for you. You just stand back and watch!

We are very impressed with the quality and capabilities of the Zap 8825-3 DC model operator and know you will be too.

COMMENT: I was on the fence between this operator and the Liftmaster MJ 5011U. I was leaning more towards the Zap and after talking with the sales consultant, he assured me I was leaning in the right direction for my applications. I like the simplicity of the motor mounting and also that the control box is mounted at ground level for ease of installation/servicing. Also love the how-to installation videos from North Shore which will be a HUGE help when I go to install them. Keep up the great videos! by Joel J 9/13/2017
